A lower-middle-income country, the Philippines has a food deficit that is exacerbated by the combined effects of man-made and natural disasters that include earthquakes, typhoons and armed conflict.

As one of the world's most disaster-prone countries, it ranked third out of 171 countries on the 2015 World Risk Index and fourth out of 188 countries on the 2016 Global Climate Risk Index. The country experiences around 20 typhoons a year, five of which are expected to cause major damage and trigger floods and landslides. Vulnerability to the occurrence of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and climate change-related phenomena, such as drought, exacerbate the situation.  

The Mindanao region has suffered from over four decades of armed conflict. This has resulted in internal displacements – between 2000 and 2010, over 40 percent of families were displaced at least once because of the violence – and overall deterioration of living standards. The people of the Central Mindanao region are the country’s poorest, showing significantly lower rates of primary-school completion and stunted growth (caused by chronic malnutrition) among children under five. 

Although the World Food Programme (WFP)’s work in the Philippines dates from1968, we re-established our presence in the country in 2006 at the request of the Government to support the ongoing peace process in the Mindanao region.

Working closely with the Government of the Philippines, other United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations and communities, WFP focuses on increasing long-term food and nutrition security while assisting people and communities to build resilience to be better prepared for the consequences of disasters
